An array of all-star musicians made up the Oscar house band on Sunday night, as the group consisted of award-winning film scorer Hans Zimmer (Inception, The Dark Knight), Hip Hop producer Pharrell Williams (Jay-Z, Madonna), as well as Bollywood composer A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours).
This marked Rahman's third time performing on the Oscar stage, as he lent vocals and played the piano all throughout the night's festivites.
Rahman even tweeted a photo of him and the super-group, which he commented by saying "Our Oscar Superband" (the picture can be seen below)
Rahman is no stranger to collaborating with the very best at the Oscars, as in 2009 he performed alongside R&B artist John Legend for a colorful rendition of "Jai Ho/Oh Saya" from Slumdog Millionaire, while last year he collaborated with Florence & The Machine songstress Florence Welch on the song "Til I Rise" from 127 Hours.
